Beware of "Facebook Online International Lottery" Scam

The email message below which claims the recipients are winners in the Facebook Online International Lottery is a scam. There is no such lottery. As a matter of fact, there is no Facebook lottery. Therefore, recipients of similar messages claiming they are winners in some so-called Facebook lottery should never respond to the fraudulent email messages with their personal information or financial information, and should never send money to the lottery scammers.

Please continue below.

And, do not be fooled by fake Facebook lottery winning certificates and remember, once you are asked to send personal information or money in order to claim a lottery prize, it is a scam.

    Received a request for a Friend online at first. Then I received news that I had won $500,000.00 by this same individual. She gave me a list of numbers including a serial number. She said that if I paid an initial 400 dollars I would receive my winnings.

    When I told her I could not pay the money, she tried to convince me to buy an Itunes card for 100.00 dollars. Then I received a message from FedX and they wanted $200.00 for the delivery. Winnings do not cost anything to receive, besides the company should be covering that.

    Lastly, I received a phone call from California. When I checked the reverse look up, it came up John Smith, how original. I have all the info on my phone, should someone should want to check.
    I hope this will help someone else.
    Thank you.
